It has been a nice Friday with highs 46-51.

Lows of 27-31 are likely tonight with skies becoming partly to mostly cloudy late. 

With partly to mostly cloudy skies Saturday & north-northwest winds 10-15 mph, highs of 40-46 are likely, followed by lows of 28-32 tomorrow night.

Sunday looks partly to mostly cloudy with a couple isolated light rain/snow showers & highs 39-44 with northeast winds 7-15 mph.

Monday should be partly to mostly cloudy with highs 40-45 (north-northeast winds 10-20 mph) after morning lows of 28-32.

Tuesday looks partly cloudy with highs 45-50 & west to southwest winds 10-15 mph after morning lows of 25-30.

We continue to warm next week with high of 47-53 Wednesday & 51-57 Thursday.  Thursday looks mostly sunny to sunny with southwest wind 5-10 mph.

Friday looks partly cloudy with south-southwest wind 5-10 mph & highs 55-60.

The next storm system looks slower to get here & stronger.

We shouldn't see any rainfall from it until late next Saturday.  Widespread rainfall & even a few t'storms are likely Saturday night-Sunday morning of NEXT weekend.  0.75-1.25" rainfall is looking possible now.

Winds will be strong with the system; up to 40 mph from the south to southwest ahead of it (Saturday) & southwest, west, then west-northwest to 45 mph behind it (Sunday).

Significant snowstorms is possibel from Colorado to western Kansas, eastern Nebraska & northwestern Iowa to Minnesota.

Meanwhile, severe weather is possible Missouri to the Gulf Coast, as well as southern Illinois, far southwestern Indiana to the Deep South.

A few rain/snow to snow showers may pivot in on the backside of the storm system Sunday night-Monday as temperatures fall to the 30s with continued +40 mph wind gusts.

Overall, looks like a warm pattern through late December to early January.  It also still looks like a wetter regime.

Could we squeeze in a snow?  It is possible, but if its an accumulating one the snow will not last on the ground very long.

I think there is a brief window with just marginal temperatures for a wet snow around December 20.  We will monitor

Otherwise, Christmas & New Year's look warm, windy & showery to stormy.

You can see how it gets wetter, especially Christmas & onward to early January.

Warmer regime prevails into early January.

January does look warmer than normal overall, but I do see some shots of cold air coming in mid & late January that give us opportunities for some accumulating snowfall & ice in an active storm track.
